Trail Mix Chocolate Bark

Makes: 3 dozen 1 1/2-inch pieces

Serving Size: 1 1/2-inch piece

Active Time:

Total Time:


  • 2 cups chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate (or chips)
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped salted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup salted pretzel pieces


  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. (Take care to avoid wrinkles.)
  2. Place chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted. (Alternatively, place in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.)
  3. Combine peanuts, raisins and pretzels in a small bowl. Stir half of the mixture into the melted chocolate. Scrape the chocolate onto the foil and spread it into a 9-inch square. Sprinkle with the remaining trail mix, pressing any large bits in. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.
  4. Transfer the bark and foil to a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces.
